Back in the day I posted some of my theories to some answers to Episode I -- like why didn't Qui-Gon Jinn disappear like a true Jedi Master would and is there an after-life in the Star Wars Galaxy? I posted those thoughts on the Midwest Discussion page and I got ripped on big time. I was accused of using a illegal substance while thinking of those ideas. Just to recap what my ideas were: 1. Qui-Gon Jinn was actually a Sith insider, working in secret with Darth Sidious. Supposedly, Qui-Gon Jinn forsees Anakin to be a future Dark Lord of the Sith and pushes the Jedi Council to train him. Qui-Gon would also know that he would be sacrificed, Obi-Wan would train the young Skywalker and will ultimately fail. You'd think that someone like Yoda or Mace Windu would see right through Qui-Gon that he would be a Sith, but a classic quote from Yoda himself, "Hard to see the Dark Side is." We have yet to see a Dark Lord of the Sith die (we really don't know what happens to Darth Maul's separated body, and Darth Vader was redeemed (according to the Official Site, Anakin Skywalker disappears inside Vader's suit, therefore a spirit form at the end of RotJ), Emperor Palpatine -- well, yeah, but his spirit lived). I wonder if Sith Lords disappear or not when they die. Some people say that Qui-Gon died a "true death," whatever that means, but he died at the hands of a lightsaber, just like Obi-Wan and he disappeared. Yoda died of old age, and I would consider that to be a "true death." I remember reading in Greg Bear's "Rogue Planet" about "true death" or something like that, but I can't recall it. 2. After-lives in the Star Wars Galaxy? A paradise or a hell? Recall Han Solo saying in ESB when he says, "I'll see you in hell!" when he goes out and looks for Luke. Maybe those who aren't Force-sensitive get to go someplace also... Just some things I thought of a while back. I don't really know if I still believe in these wacked-out ideas -- but be prepared for any surprises in Ep. II or III, cuz Mr. George Lucas loves doing that.
